A Lasting Legacy
Over 150 years ago, Thomas E. Ricks was nearly killed on his way to the Salt Lake Valley. Now, his ancestor John Ricks is keeping his legacy alive through the BYU-Idaho Legacy Society.
Change people's lives at home and around the world
To recognize the generosity of donors who provide deferred gifts, Brigham Young University-Idaho created the BYU-Idaho Legacy Society. On November 12, 1888, Brigham Young University-Idaho was dedicated, and on that day, Jacob Spori (the first principal) said, “The seeds we are planting today will grow and become mighty oaks, and their branches will run all over the earth.” The BYU-Idaho Legacy Society was named for the donors who are planting these seeds today. By providing a deferred gift today, you can ensure the success of future students attending Brigham Young University-Idaho for generations to come.
The BYU-Idaho Legacy Society is open to any donor who has named Brigham Young University-Idaho in a deferred gift such as a will, a life insurance policy, a gift annuity, or a trust. No minimum gift amount is required to join. As we are notified of the deferred gift, we include the donors in the activities of the society. Visit our membership information page to learn more.
There are currently 307 members in the BYU-Idaho Legacy Society, representing 197 households. Visit this page to learn more about giving opportunities at Brigham Young University-Idaho.
